Re: Adjusting flap to elevator compensation during flight.

I have found an answer to my own question.
The main "volume control" mix is described here: http://rc-soar.com/opentx/setups/adjuster/adjuster.htm

I will put up a screenshot of my final mix tomorrow.
It works good...........controlled by S1 rotary knob.

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch. (abandoned).

Martin,

If you have this logical switch working as you say, how much problem would it be for you to post a (EEPE?) file for downloading as a template?
I (and other readers) could then import the file into a test model set up and see if I/ they can get it work.

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch. (abandoned).

Basically this routine has no direct effect on the servo whatsoever. All it does is sets the throttle channel to -100 no matter where the throttle stick is. Then once switch E is held down for between 3 and 5 seconds AND the throttle stick is fully down it will enable the throttle stick to work aga...

Re: Throttle cut using logical switch. (abandoned).

Ok, than you have solved the problem. The thing is, unless the switching point of the engine killer switch could be programmed, you couldn't use the throttle channel. If you could program the switch to switch at a given pulse from the receiver, then it could be possible to do it using the same chan...

Re: RC Switch, 4 Outputs on a Single RX Channel

Joao,
Thanks for alerting me to this thread of yours.
I will read it as soon as I get some time.

(Maybe not).
